Move beyond talk therapy – fund rec therapy research

I [Danny Pettry] have graduate degrees in both Mental Health Counseling and Recreational Therapy.

I’ve often argued that people “talk” about it in individual therapy and actually do something about it in “recreational therapy,” by practicing.

There was a real neat article in the Military Times by Bret A. Moore.  The author argues going beyond talk therapy. Research and evidenced is discussed.

What did Bret Moore suggest?

“We need to fund studies looking at the benefits of meditation, exercise, recreational therapies and other noninvasive approaches to achieving and maintaining health.”

Read about it here:
